Hyperthyroidism High Hopes

26 posts in this topic

Hi Kathy,


Well, it's interesting that you won't be treated for Grave's right now.  If you have any doubt at all about your treatment plan, be sure to seek a second opinion from a board certified endocrinologist, because it sounds like you are experiencing uncomfortable (and treatable) symptoms.


Also, please be sure to read up about "thyroid storm" which can occur with untreated and undertreated Graves disease. It's a very sudden, life threatening condition, so if you are aware of the symptoms you will know if/when to seek emergency care. It's also a good idea for people close to you to be aware of thyroid storm symptoms, in case you are feeling too grouchy or sleepy (from the storm) to react. It's not that it definitely would happen, just something to not take any chances with, either, especially since you are symptomatic but untreated at the moment.


I'm delighted that your marriage is "back online".  That's the first time I've heard that phrase, so I got a belly laugh from it. It's amazing how a lighthearted sense of humor can help restore relationships (taking things too seriously can be such a downer), so clearly you already have that arrow in the quiver!



Warm Hugs,
